Water etching ceramics is a simple technique for adding texture to ceramic surfaces. Water etching ceramics is the process of painting a resist pattern onto a bone dry piece of pottery, allowing the resist to dry, and then wiping clay away with a damp sponge. In this workshop you will apply the etching technique to 2 pieces of pottery.
This workshop is for beginner level and beyond, you could be a potter, wheel or hand building, or a clay sculptor. You do not need to know how to draw.
-Bring up to two Bone Dry pieces, preferably with some nice smooth surface area and made from a clay WITHOUT any grog in it. It can be a pot, sculptures or ties, not made too thinly.
-Students should bring an old towel or rag ( hand/ dish towel size), pencil and paper.

If someone just wants to observe and not participate hands on that is fine
A Cape Cod native, Holly began her journey with clay as an apprentice at Brewster Pottery. Being completely smitten, she continued on to complete a Bachelors degree in Art Education at Skidmore College. From there it was on to The School for American Craftsman at Rochester Institute of Technology where she received an MFA. The next years were spent teaching in New York state and as an Artist-in-Residence at ArtPark on the Niagara River in Lewiston, NY. Eventually the ocean beckoned and she returned home to Barnstable Village where she established her studio, Bay Scallop Pottery. Working on the potter's wheel and with hand building techniques, Holly makes contemporary functional ware. Her inspiration comes from life near the seashore. It is her hope that her pottery speaks in a clear quiet manner reflecting her love of place.
